ECOS also requests EPA minimize potential preemption of states or local mercury reduction programs under TSCA. Additionally ECOS requests that the federal government implement the Mercury Export Ban Act by siting and opening the mercury storage facility called for in the act and ensuring the safety of any interim transport and storage of excess mercury until the storage facility is open. EPA is called on top convene a national amalgam separator review committee and to implement ECOS’ recommendations regarding TSCA Mercury Inventory requirements.
